Steve Austin Show Recap w/ Elias – Working the Indies & WWE Debut, Dusty Rhodes’ Influence, Who Named His Finishing Move? More!
Elias says that Reigns is in the position he’s in for a reason, and whether fans cheer him or boo him, they all react to him. Elias felt that when he entered the ring with him a couple of weeks ago. He thought their styles meshed together nicely and while he wasn’t nervous for the match, there was a genuine feeling of excitement over the fact that he’d been waiting for that moment his entire life.
He says that he was a big fan of Shawn Michaels growing up, and Michaels’ WWE Title win at WrestleMania 12 was a defining moment for him. Austin says his favourite wrestler of all time is Ric Flair, but he considers Michaels to be the greatest in-ring worker in the history of the business.
Elias informs that Jeff Hardy came up with the name of his finishing move, “Drift Away”. Austin mentions that Hardy was always very thoughtful and creative when coming up with names for his finishing moves.
That sum up today’s episode of The Steve Austin Show. You can listen to the show yourself anytime here, and I’ll catch ya next week for another recap!
